    My problem started the same way. the timer advances normally in auto dry mode, but no motor and heat. In timed mode. the timer also advance normally but when i select the time, i must hold the knob down for a couple of seconds for it to catch and stay "on". Sometimes, it comes off after a few minutes.
    any ideas???

On my kenmore dryer 970-c82062-00 I can get all 3 timers to start but the heated automatic dry portion does not time out.

that model number doesn't come up,you sure that isn't the serial number?also does the dryer have heat,when you run it on time dry the timer just counts down like a clock,when on auto or more or less the heat comes on until the dryer heats to temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance,when the heat comes back on the timer stops moving,it will do this until the clothes are dry,if you do have heat you could have a bad sensor or a bad cycling thermostat but you'll have to check it with a meter.send the model number and i can help you better.

Our 12 year old kitchenaide prestige dryer's timer gets stuck and it does not shut off automatically

Hi, If the dryer heats in the automatic cycle and the timer still does not advance, try using the time cycle. If the timer still won't advance, you will need to replace the timer.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Timers are not advancing through cycle. Dryer just continues to run. Thank you for your assistance. Chuck

Hi Chuck,
If the dryer is heating up and the timer will not advance in either time or automatic cycles, you will need to change the timer. If the timer advances in time cycle but not the auto cycle, you need to make sure it is heating properly. The timer only advances in the auto cycle after it reaches a certain temperature.
I hope this helps you at all. Please let me know if I can assist you further in this matter.

Dryer drys but the timer dial does not turn to stop automatic

Hi, You will need to change the timer. The timer motor has gone bad. You can test it by removing the back cover on the control panel and test the two wires going to the timer motor to see if it is getting 120V. If it is getting voltage, it should turn.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
